Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Shades of Downton Abbey inhabit the wonderful Edwardian Kitchen with its twinkling brass pans and elegant ceiling. The menu on offer is, however, very much of the 21st century and the garden space is a true family refuge after a walk round the country park or a couple of hours in the adventure playground. This space also has outdoor heaters for cooler days. What about a toasted marshmallow hot chocolate for the kids and a glass of mulled wine for the grown ups? A keen awareness of current food trends can be detected in the offerings, such as a main course of fiery vegan macaroni cheese, which – accompanied by a plate of sweet potato wedges a glass of Scottish raspberry lemonade and an outsize scone or slice of house-baked pistachio and cardamom chai cake cannot fail to satisfy the most demanding palate. Children are well catered for with excellent picnic bags and anyone wanting to relax in the garden with a glass of wine and a gourmet sandwich will be pleasantly surprised by the very reasonable price tag.
